things i miss: the food. oh, the food. hawaii, you are so delicious. and dreamy. i will miss the magic of hawaii. and the food trucks, the people watching, the beaches, the people, that time with ryan, the little lizards that pop up everywhere, the sand that clings to your feet forever,
places i need to return to: pupukea grill, kokohead cafe, white elephant thai truck, ted’s bakery (the haupia pie…)
what i loved: iolani palace, every single beach we went to, reading for hours uninterrupted, the hawaiian quilting class, the food.
one day we’ll go back, and we’ll take the kids with us. i can’t wait to see them on paddle boards, and splashing in the waves.
